A Thursday Morning at the Children's Home

On Thursday's I have been watching the younger children at the home while the house moms meet with the director. It has been a lot of fun, but also very busy. I am thankful for Flora (pictured with Myah) for her help rounding up ten little ones.

A Few Pictures from Manchay

This morning Myah and I went to see the Care Center (Cuna) and meet some of the children. We played with the youngest group of children out side.
Tyler, Juan Carlos, Dave, Dan and one other person were pouring concrete for a retaining wall. It is amazing how much things have changed since I was here last. I think most of the new constructoin here is nearly complete. That is great timming as it appears that things should be settled for building to begin in Pachacamac this coming January. A view of the Cuna from across the road. In the lower left corner you can see our new car.

Planting a Garden at the Children's Home

Paola, one of my very hard working helpers.
One of my first jobs at the home this week was to plant the gardens at the back of the home. All of the house moms and the children were very excited. Very quickly I had many volunteers to help with the planting. Everyone worked well together and we got the job done in good time. We can hardly wait to see how it will look as the plants continue to grow and fill out.

I am sure some of you will remember some of the kids in this picture.

This is Mercedes, she is one of the newest and youngest girls at the home. Behind her you can see our finished garden.
I had plenty of help from many of the children and Tyler.

Some pictures of our First Two Weeks

The girls say "Hi"

Afternoons with Myah can be quite a lot of fun

This one inch long lizzard became part of our family this week after nearly being stepped on in our driveway. He enjoys a healthy diet of ants and flies and the odd bite of corn flakes.

Hannah and Sarah were welcomed to their class with many cards and signs like the one sarah is holding in this picture.
